First Step

Starkville, MS - Mile 0 - Jan 28th, 2020

Where am I? I ask myself that frequently. Back when I was a World of Warcraft raider, I used to joke that I should have a cloak that said, "If you are following me, you're lost, too". In the real world, I should probably have that bumper sticker, also. Being often lost, I've learned some things about how to find yourself. Although I've never "found myself" in the metaphorical sense, I've always found my way home. You start with where you are. I am sitting on my back porch, listening to birds, and watching my the dogs soak up some sun. What clues can you find in your present location to help you know which way to go? I am outside, soaking up the sun. I was out here shivering through the cold last week. Where do I need to go next? Who am I? I don't know. I hope the answers are as clear as white blazes on the trail. For now, I'll put on my pack and go follow the sun.
